CORD CUTTERS: 12 BEST PARACORD KNIVES

When it comes to outdoor exploration, off-grid adventuring, and survivalist training, a fixed blade knife is one of, if not the most important item to have in your arsenal. It can be used to help build a fire, erect a shelter, make a hunting trap, and can even be used as a self-defense weapon against any wayward predators. But if you really want to up your survival game, a knife isn’t the only tool you need.

If you want to stay one step ahead, pairing up your cutting tool with a bit of paracord is an especially great and minimalist way to be even more prepared for any situation you might face in the wilderness. And while you could keep a bundle of paracord in your pocket, hiking backpack, or wear a survival bracelet made of the stuff, there is a fourth option: a paracord knife. The following list is a collection of worthwhile outdoor-ready fixed blade knives, each with a handle of wrapped paracord — making for a compact, comprehensive, and effective outdoor survival tool. The next time you’re headed into unknown territory, bring one of these along and you’ll increase your preparedness tenfold.

DPX GEAR HEST II ASSAULT PARACORD KNIFE

For those not in the know, DPx Gear’s founder, Robert Young Pelton, is one of the toughest, most bat sh*t insane men on the planet. He’s embroiled himself in some of the worst conflicts on Earth, seen every edge of our dangerous planet, and came out the other side swinging. So, when the time came to build knives, he had to make them tough enough to suit a life as intense as his. The HEST II Assault paracord knife is one such blade. It boasts a top-tier TiCN PVD-coated Niolox steel blade, skeletonized handle, and enough paracord to use out in the wilderness. And, even if you aren’t stuck in a survival situation, this knife is a handy tool to have, thanks to its built-in bottle opener.

Steel: TiCN PVD-Coated Niolox
Blade Length: 3.15″
